Franz Ferdinand Update

Mr. Stephin Merritt will be covering a song entitled "Dream Again" on the upcoming Record Store Day exclusive Franz Ferdinand Covers EP.  Proof (if you demand it), and scant more information can be found here.  Thanks forevermore to Keith for this information.  While this particular Franz Ferdinand track does remind me slightly of "When I'm Not Looking, You're Not There", it seems like just as odd a choice for Mr. Merritt to cover as any other Franz Ferdinand song would have proven to be.  I will be looking forward to Record Store Day this year!

Also, Ms. Gail O'Hara has written a brief history of the world's second most famous chihuahua (I have to give that Beverly Hills Chihuahua dog some credit) here.  Irving Berlin's reputation proves to be as feisty as his appearances in the documentary would have you believe.
